In a Bizarro World, Neturei Karta Cult Keeps Anti-Independence Day
I altered the headline to be more specific, because just being ultra orthodox does not create the cognitive dissonance that is Neturei Karta.
In the neighborhood of Meah She’arim, stronghold of the vehemently anti-Zionist sect of Neturei Karta, Israel’s Independence Day is traditionally kept as the inverse of the country’s national celebrations.
Many ads of all sizes have been posted around the neighborhood in recent days, in preparation for the anti-holiday. Nearly all of them are calling for prayer vigils and fasting on “The day the State of Israel and Zionism came into being.”
